I had been playing my clarinet with Rico Royal reeds for about 5 years when my clarinet teacher suggested I buy some Vandoren reeds. It was well worth the investment. While not all of the reeds that come in the box are good, most of them are not only usable but have a great tone and amazing durability. I am not an expert on clarinet reeds, but they are the best I have used in my experience so far.

These reeds are often heavy on the tip on the left side. (This is a tendency of Vandoren's I don't like.) It's a good step up from Rico regular reeds and Mitchell Lurie reeds. I recommend these for high school students. I don't like the consistency of the amount of "bad reeds" in a box though. If you're will to try something else, I'd recommend a step up to V12 reeds.

        Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bb Clarinet Reeds:

        I don't need to explain much for the Vandoren classics. They are the standard in classrooms everywhere for reeds with good sound quality and good resonance. For a long time, however, I noticed there was drastic differences between reeds, in playability and sound quality. After some research, I discovered that the reed cuts could have been my issue, and it was: I found that the 'bad' reeds I had were all of the miscut reeds in each box. Once I learned this, I bought quite a few reeds and discovered that on average, in a box of 10, four reeds were usable. Four.
        I recommend using silver box Vandorens, and I plan on trying reeds outside of the Vandoren spectrum as well (Rico, Alexander)

        As a beginning clarinet player my teacher recommended this company and specific reed. He claimed the Vandoren Traditional B Flat Strength 3 reed surpassed others with its quality for the price.

            Comments about Vandoren Traditional Bb Clarinet Reeds:

            As a professional clarinetist for 53 years, I have played many reeds. I currently play on a Vandoren M 13 Lyre Series 13 mouthpiece with 3.5 Traditional Vandoren reeds. I find that the Vandoren Traditional reed works well whether I am playing Principal Clarinet in an orchestra, chamber group, symphonic wind ensemble, jazz combo or musical pit orchestra. I also like the variety of tonal qualities that I can achieve with the Vandoren traditional reeds.

            They are a wonderful all around reed that sounds great, lasts a long time and can be purchased a good price.
